LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (9-7)New faces

C Mike Pouncey Womens Darius Philon Jersey , TE Virgil Green, S Derwin James, LB Uchenna Nwosu, QB Geno Smith, PK Caleb Sturgis, PK Roberto Aguayo.Key losses: S Tre Boston, TE Antonio Gates, DL Jeremiah Attaochu, TE Hunter Henry (injury), CB Jason Verrett (injury).Strengths: Ample talent in place to build on last season's finish of nine wins in 12 games. Philip Rivers back for 13th consecutive season as starter along with formidable receiver corps led by Pro Bowler Keenan Allen. Pouncey already giving boost to run game with Melvin Gordon. Defense largely unchanged, but restocked with draft picks including James Womens Russell Okung Jersey , Nwosu. Edge rusher Melvin Ingram has been monster in preseason. Have one of NFL's easier schedules and have five-game winning streak at tiny StubHub Center, clearly unaffected by presence of opponents' fans.Weaknesses: Already lost starting TE Henry, former Pro Bowl CB Verrett to season-ending injury. Defense could be uneven, possibly lacking depth with questionable quality at linebacker and interior line. Run defense still not impressive after struggling last season. Still waiting to identify new kicker after four guys took turns failing at position last year, likely costing playoff berth with early-season woes.Fantasy Players To Watch: WR Mike Williams. Last season's seventh overall pick made no impact after starting slowly due to injury. That could change in huge way this season. Tall, speedy receiver has been outstanding in practices and preseason games, presenting big target for Rivers. Williams could be huge bargain in many leagues.Vegas Says: Super Bowl 15-1. Over/under wins 9.5.Expectations: Bolts believe they've got Super Bowl contender after encouraging finish to last season. Season opener against Chiefs should establish early favorite in AFC West. Rivers poised for another strong season with no signs of slowing down. Continuity on roster and coaching staff should boost chances. Must survive six-week midseason stretch with only one home game and trip to London. If Chargers can avoid injury problems that popped up repeatedly for previous teams, future looks bright.BFTB Roundtable: Which Offensive Player Are You Most Excited To Watch? It’s here, you guys. The first preseason game and our first chance to see the Bolts take the field for the 2018 season.There are a ton of story-lines to watch: the backup QB situation, tight position battles, and certain players beginning a career in a whole new position. With so much to watch http://www.chargersfootballauthentics.co...-authentic , I decided to go around and ask the guys who they’ll be watching the closest on either side of the ball.First up, offensive players.Louis Gorini: I’m a fat guy so I will be focusing on my fellow fat guys. I will be looking at Dan Feeney and seeing how he performs in the trenches. Last year his play was decent, I want to see how he performs with a solid veteran center next to himCody Young: I want to see what Virgil Green looks like in the Chargers offense. Obviously losing Hunter Henry was pretty devastating. They’re going to need Green to step up for them.Isaac Gutierrez: I’m going to pick the easy answer— Mike Williams. After his injury filled rookie season it would be great to see him get off too a quick start in the preseason. If he ends up living up to his draft pedigree this season the team’s offense should be at another level than we’ve seen in previous years.Jamie Sewell: I want to see Austin Ekeler. I have a man crush on him, and if he plays as well this preseason as he did in the last one, he’s surely got to be in like to take some more snaps away from Melvin Gordon.Ruben Gonzalez: I would like to see Geno Smith get some real time running the 1st teamers. For some reason, it seems like coach Lynn has a special place in his heart for Cardale Jones. So I would hope that Geno proves effective and puts all this ‘battle for no. 2’ to bed once and for all. (edited)Matthew Stanley: Sean Culkin. I was on team Culkin big time and the team needs to see if they can get by with Virgil Green, Sean Culkin, and Braedon Bowman at the TE position. Michael Peterson: With it being the first game of the preseason, I don’t expect to see a lot of Melvin Gordon or even Austin Ekeler for that matter. I’m most excited to see seventh-round running back Justin Jackson in an extended fashion. He started training camp behind Russell Hansbrough but I believe he will be the #3 back going forward. He rushed for over 1,000 yards each of his four seasons at Northwestern and he should make the Chargers’ stable of backs one of the most formidable in the AFC West.
